The water in the Dead Sea has no outflow, so anything that comes in can’t leave.
As water evaporates, minerals are left behind, forming a salinity rate of 25% and rising.
Nothing can survive salt levels that high; therefore “Dead” Sea is a pretty good name for it.
The Dead Sea borders Jordan to the east and Israel and the West Bank to the west, and is 8.6 times more salty than the ocean.
Biblically, the Dead Sea was a place of refuge for King David, and was one of the first health resorts in the world.
